Saturday scenes: that was fun

Yesterday I ran 41 miles in 12 hours at the Pacific Coast Trail 12-Hour Run at Crissy Field adjacent to the Bay with the Golden Gate Bridge in the background. That's 60 laps around a 1K course. I found the "squirrel cage" experience much less tedious than I'd feared. Park improvement projects forced substitution of this route around a (beautifully situated) parking lot for the planned course around a lagoon.

I think of the five months I trained for this as my birthday present as I approach 70. EP has been wonderfully supportive of this madness and faithfully crewed in cold, dark and gale-force winds, taking a few laps with me yesterday.
